Play’n GO credited at 2018 Gambling Compliance Global Regulatory Awards

Play’n GO has another trophy under its belt after Deion Williams landed the Data Protection Officer of the Year title at the 2018 Gambling Compliance Global Regulatory Awards.

The company’s Information, Security and Technical Compliance Officers showed promising commitment to implementing data protection procedures. This has been a significant factor in the firm's entry into new markets.

Johan Törnqvist, CEO at Play’n GO, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that Deion has been crowned Data Protection Officer of the Year.

“Since joining the company last year, he’s played an instrumental role in the implementation of regulatory measures to help the company grow in new and existing regulated markets.

“Huge congratulations go to him and the rest of the team, and a big thanks for all the hard work they continue to put in for us.”

This year’s award was shared between Play’n GO and Kindred’s Anna Niewiadomska, with the judges unable to distinguish between the pair’s outstanding commitment to compliance.

Williams, who clinched the award at last night’s ceremony in London, said he was honoured to receive industry acclaim for his work.

He added: “For myself and the rest of the team to be recognised for our hard work is a fantastic feeling, especially at such a prestigious ceremony.”
